Video Transcript for Curt Fifth Wheel Installation Kit C16023 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Curt GM OEM puck system fifth wheel roller adaptor rails. This is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2016 and newer Chevrolet Silverado, and GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500 trucks that have the six and a half foot bed, and the factory rail kit installed. Now, on a custom fit part, I always like to recommend for you to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it will show you if this will work on your vehicle. Now, this is a custom base, specifically designed to attach to the receivers in your Chevy or GMC factory installed under bed towing prep package. This base will work with the Curt hitches that have sliders, part number C16521, C16516, C16541, and C16536. All those part numbers we do sell separately on our website.

Now, the adaptor, when you do install this into the puck system, it does add about a 1 3/8 inch height compared to your industry standard rails. It does use the quarter turn anchoring system for a nice quick installation and removal. All you have to do is pop this pin and clip, that's tethered to the rail, open this a quarter of a turn, and you'll notice the tabs turn. You'll do that on all four corners, and that will allow you to drop this base right into the puck system in the truck. Once it drops in, just turn it a quarter of a turn to lock it into place. Take your pin and clip, and then just install that back in there to lock that into place, keep this from opening. Now, if you notice, right here, they do have adjustable anchors to help to eliminate any chucking between any legs in the under bed platform.

You can just tighten or loosen this nut right here, to adjust the anchors. It does have a nice durable carbide black powder coat finish on it, to help resist corrosion. Comes with the four hitch pins and clips to secure your slider hitch to the adaptor. Comes with a nice set of detailed instructions that describe how to put it all together. Again, the specs on this, it's for a 2016 and newer Chevy or GMC truck with the factory installed under bed towing prep package. It does have a weight capacity of 20,000 pounds.

Basically, once you open these quarter turned system right here, drop it into your puck system, close them up, lock them into place, and this is installed in your truck bed. Then you'll notice these slots right here, this is where your Curt slider hitch will drop right in, and then using the included pins and clips attach it to the adaptor. Simple as that. That should do it for the review on the Curt GM OEM puck system fifth wheel roller adaptor rails.

Very heavy duty hitch. Initially had some concerns so ordered the 20,000 lbs. instead of the 16000. Very good service from the etrailer representatives. Had some concerns on how long the delivery was going to take, however they were able to get it to me in a very short time. Thank you to the individuals who helped with my order. Danny 338540

First of all, the purchase procedure was painless and the product performed as listed. I purchased this fifth wheel hitch base for a 2018 GMC 2500HD with under the bed hidden puck fifth wheel configuration. After a few minor adjustments the base fit the truck and the 20K lb. fifth wheel hitch very well and performed equally as well. I would recommend this purchase. 675402

It took only about 20 minutes to assemble. We always shop online at etrailer for our product needs as they provide the best customer service and are very knowledgeable. 612020

Very easy to assemble. The instruction should say not the tighten the bolts on the crossmember until the base of the hitch in placed into the slots that attach the lower hitch to the rail assembly. I tighten all the bolts before I attempted to attached the lower hitch to the rails and the rail slots would not alleign with the base. Once I loosened the nuts the base fit perfectly then torqued all the nuts. 560335

Very good product! Super easy to install. Took me less than 30 minutes to have my 5th wheel hitch set up and ready to pull. Only weighs 80lbs and is easy to take in and out of the bed of the truck. Shipping from etrailer was fast. This is my second purchase from etrailer. Great experience. Company very heart full. 465116

The C16023 worked perfectly with my new Chevrolet silverado LTZ 2500 HD under the bed mounted fith wheel attachment. The only thing I recommend is to read the instruction before installation. It looked so simple to install I went ahead without reading the instruction and had to use a hammer to close the last locking handle. As it turns out there is a simple Castle nut and cotter pin adjustment to make. Luckily I did no damage and all went well during the installation. I would highly recommend this product. Also etrailer.com was vary helpful over the phone helping me figure out what I needed for my truck.. They also emailed when package was shipped and when it was delivered. They have the best prices as well. A big thanks to there customer service team for all of there help. 465090

Can not believe the condition of all items as they were received from shipping carrier. Boxes torn apart, bolts and nuts all scattered. Even 5th wheel hitch had rubber on handle cut. Found nuts and bolts on ground next to where the shipping carrier had unloaded items. Luckily found all nuts and bolts after searching area where it was off loaded from shipping truck. Even the cross brace for the hitch roller was bent. After reading other reviews I kind of expected this however. I can't believe you would ship something like a hitch protecting in the cheap boxes used! You need to improve the packaging! Other than that it did arrive quickly. 396454

The product is great and if you put the puck rails together write the system goes together easy, my only complaint is with UPS my boxes where damaged badly and some of the bolts and one hitch pin was missing. I went to the local store and they had everything I needed so I was only out an extra $25.00 for the parts, considering I got the system for a lot of money and the dealers here wanted $2500.00 to $3000.00. 392250

As always etrailer was a pleasure to work with. The box was damaged during shipping and a bag of screw fell out. One call to Etrailer and the problem was solved. Took about 30 minutes to install. (Half of that was finding my torque wrench). 376027

Works as described and fit well in my 2016 Silverado 3500 after adjusting the castle nuts. Unfortunately, the extra height (over standard rails) is preventing me from getting the RV level. With the hitch bolts in the lowest holes, the hitch sits just over 19 inches. Even with the pin box at maximum height, the front of the RV rides high. Disappointed. 374952

I recently purchased a fifth wheel hitch for my new truck but wasn't sure I ordered the correct one after hitting the "enter" key! I called etrailer the following morning and found out I had, in fact, ordered the wrong hitch. The young man I spoke with was incredibly helpful - he canceled my initial order, explained what I really needed and why and then placed the order. I went on line the next day and found that the order had somehow been cancelled. I then spoke with LEAH G. She is the bomb. She corrected everything and did her best to expedite shipping including personally making certain that MY shipment was on the last truck of the day. What more can I say. Etrailer.com and Leah G are unbelievably awesome from beginning to end! Thank you for a great experience Conrad 369499

This adapter for towing prep package on Chevrolet trucks was simple to assemble and install and I would recommend to anyone. For me, I did not mate a Curt hitch on the mount and consequently the design of the mount prevents my hitch's sliding feature from working (the slide can not be unlocked). The angle steel which is used to hold the two mounting point halves blocks one of the lock pins. I hardly ever used my slide so I am not concerned. 332651

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit for GM Rail Kit Fit 2020 Chevy Silverado 3500HD
  • The 2020 GM factory rail kits were changed from 2019 so the correct adapter you'd need is the part # DM6333 and not the Curt # C16023 that you referenced as it fits the first generation of GM rail kits.

  • Recommended Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch for 2018 Chevy 2500 Silverado with Short Bed and Factory Pucks
  • For your 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500 with the factory pucks, I recommend the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch w/ Slider for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 20K # BWRVK3770 for your short bed. This is rated higher than the 16K you needed as a minimum and is able to be installed in two pieces. It is one of our most popular sliding hitches for the factory rail kit/puck system. Another option I recommend is the Curt A16 5th Wheel Slider # C16521 along with the specific adapter...

The center post has a lever to lock the adapter into place and then a thumb screw tightens that down to secure it. The 5th wheel hitch will fit right over this adapter to make it more secure.

  • For your 2017 GMC Sierra 2500 with factory 5th wheel prep and 6-1/2-foot bed you will need a slider type hitch to provide enough turning clearance for low-speed turns. All suitable options are shown on the linked page. Since your trailer weight is in the range of 11K, I suggest the Curt 16K-rated hitch # C16521 along with the matching installation kit # C16023. The install kit drops right into your factory pucks and the hitch then drops right in to the install kit. This Curt hitch...

The slots are a little wider than industry standard rails, so your Reese hitch which has the industry standard base of 22x20-1/2 on center will technically work with this adapter but you will have slightly more side to side movement with that extra 1/8 inch on each side.

  • Each of the fifth wheel rail adapters you mentioned, the Demco # DM6194 and Curt # C16023 will offer you complete security for the hitches that fit on them. The Demco works by turning the locking plate with the thumb screw, which rotates the feet of the adapter locking it into place. The biggest difference between these two adapters is going to be the hitches they fit, which is generally the deciding factor in the adapter they have. The Demco adapter can accommodate any fifth-wheel hitch...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2018 GMC Sierra 2500 with Short Bed

If your truck is a long bed the above adapter will not fit due to differences between the short and long bed versions of the factory prep package.

The # C16669 is basically the sliding A20, part # C16541, combined with the adapter, part # C16023, to fit into your truck's factory puck system. The fixed # C16064 fits right into the pucks with no adapter. The sliding hitch will provide more turning clearance by traveling up to 12 inches. Also, if you would like...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch For 2016 GMC Sierra 2500
  • The factory tow package for most trucks have changed to the puck system for new models like yours. That offers the convenience of not having an aftermarket underbed rail system, but it does make most hitches incompatible. So, there is an adapter, but not an ideal option for your vehicle unless you have a specific pin box on your trailer. For your B&W hitch, you can get a new base with the puck system for a non-sliding hitch, like what you have, but that is not recommended for the 6-1/2...

The reason we only list this particular hitch as a fit for the 8 foot beds is simply because it is a stationary hitch, and with short bed trucks, a sliding hitch is typically needed to provide the necessary cab clearance for making sharp turns.

Since the Q20 has a spherical axial bearing that allows it to move 360 degrees; not just side to side. This makes it easier to attach to your trailer and allows for a smooth ride. Even though the A20 has great comfort as well, the Q20 has an edge. Please note that the Q20 is not compatible with a Revolution...

I have linked a video review of this hitch for you. This hitch is the only slider that will fit directly, without the aid of an adapter, but if you want more capacity you can use the Curt adapter, # C16023, with the 24K slider hitch # C16546.

  • The Curt Q24 Fifth Wheel hitch part # C16545-16025 is the correct fifth wheel hitch to fit the factory rail kit of your 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500. This is a stationary hitch though and you have a short bed truck so you would want a slider to give you the needed turning clearance. For that you would need the adapter part # C16023 and then the Curt slider hitch part # C16546. I would recommend returning the hitch you have for this setup.

  • There is an adapter kit that may work and will fit your 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500 with a 6-1/2' bed but the Adapter Rails for Curt 5th Wheel Hitch # C16023 is only for use with Curt fifth wheel hitches that have sliders. Instead, so long as your Valley fifth wheel hitch mounts to above-bed industry-standard rails, you will need the Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Chevy/GMC OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package # DM6194. This adapter will mount to the puck system in your Chevy's 6-1/2'...

  • Dimensions of Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapters for Factory Rails on GM and Ram Trucks
  • The distance between the pucks on the Reese Adapter for Ram # RP30154 is 39-1/8 by 30-1/2 inches. I had to contact Curt for their Adapter Rails for Curt Fifth Wheel Sliding Hitches # C16023 that fits the GM, and according to them the pucks measure approximately 27 by 20 inches.

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 with Factory Rail Kit
  • Right now Husky does not have anything to fit the 2017 Chevrolet Sierra 3500 with the factory rail kit. If you have a short bed truck the Curt # C16521 hitch with adapter rails # C16023 will work for you. If your truck has an 8 foot bed I suggest the B&W Companion # BWRVK3700 that will work for you.

  • 5th Wheel Hitch that Fits Directly in Factory Prep Package for a 2017 Chevy Silverado 3500 Short Bed
  • B&W 5th wheel trailer hitch # BWRVK3770 is the only one that fits directly into the prep package on your 2017 Chevy Silverado 3500 short bed. The lowest cost option is to use Curt 16K hitch # 16516 with the adapter # C16023. That hitch uses a slide-bar jaw though so that would allow for more movement between the jaw and king pin than the dual jaw version, # C16521. But as far as a hitch that fits directly the B&W is the only option. The king pins on 5th wheel trailers are an industry...

  • Can Mopar M20 Fifth Wheel Hitch be Converted to Slider Hitch
  • The Mopar M20 hitch is basically a rebranded Curt Q20 hitch which you could replace the legs of to get a slider hitch with the roller part # C16550 and the Ram rail kit adapter # C16022 and you'd be set to tow with your 2018 Ram 2500 with factory rail kit.

  • Recommended Base Adapters for Curt Q20 5th Wheel Hitch and Chevy HD Factory Rail Kit
  • Your Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16130 will fit the holes of the Adapter Rails for Curt 5th Wheel Hitch w/ Slider - Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # C16023. The only issue is the slots in the adapter are a little wider than the traditional base rails, so you will have an extra 1/8 inch of movement on each side. My recommendation is to either use the Demco # DM6194 instead or use the Curt OEM 5th Wheel Hitch Legs for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # C16025 which is designed for...
